if you looked at cnn yesterday afternoon, the killing in syria, it came to an end. >> it did. >> yesterday on capitol hill, republicans and democrats hugged. the whole idea of an historic hold on the secretary of defense, they said, you know what? let's put this to the side because of this cruise ship debacle. i mean, mika, all of the things we worry about -- the national debt clock stopped. >> basically the world stopped. >> we don't have to worry. paul krugman's right. we don't have to worry anymore because cnn tells us that this cruise ship was the only story that mattered yesterday for 24 hours. >> that's right. >> and you know what? makes me feel pretty good about the state of the world. >> and i'm glad they're home. >> that nothing is happening to that degree that they can do that. i think that's very exciting for all of us. i'm very pleased. >> it's very good when the world stops to be told that. >> perspective it be reassuring. >> it's all relative. that's true. >> it's all relative. syria, come on. people are dying. middle east peace breaking up. that doesn't matter.
that point. >> except remember something too. part of what you see when you turn on cnn or other stations are people in america projecting their cultural kind of assumptions onto south africa. i -- i saw somebody the other night, may have been on this show, saying, wait, he didn't call 911, which factually was not correct. they have something there. but that isn't the person he would have called is perfectly normal according to people i know in south africa for who you would call. i agree with you, it's not the american system, but you -- i think this guy has a pretty good defense based on what i talked to people in south africa, his kind of paranoia, his fear of crime. i don't think that's something so outlandish. >> the prosecutor has really been trying to portray pistorius as a flight risk, his unwillingness to recognize his crime heightens the flight ris.? do you agree with that? >> why wouldn't he have every incentive in the world to clear his name? he has an able defense team. i think that's very compelling. i think he will get bail. i'll be crazy and make the prediction. >> as i un
